He takes part in the luncheon hosted by French Pres. François Hollande before taking part in major international ceremonies of remembrance commemorating the 1944 allied offensive against the Nazis. He ends the day at Juno Beach were 18,000 Canadian troops launched their part of the battle.

 

2. McGuinty interviewed by OPP

 

The OPP confirms it has interviewed former Premier Dalton McGuinty about the gas plant closings scandal and says he has been cooperative, and is not the subject of the OPP investigation at this time. The statement by the OPP comes after revelations that the provincial police have served employees of the legislature with a court order to produce records, including visitor logs, for the times police believe a computer technician accessed hard drives in the Premier's office just four days before Kathleen Wynne was sworn in as Premier to erase all records of the political decision to shut down gas plant construction.

 

1. Caught!

 

The manhunt is over in Moncton. Just after midnight, RCMP arrested 24-year-old Justin Bourque, the man suspected of shooting and killing three Mounties and leaving two others wounded. He was arrested in the backyard of a house in the Northwest part of the city where the shooting had occurred and the neighborhood have been in lockdown while the manhunt was underway. Police advised residents on Twitter soon after the arrest that they could now leave their homes and move freely.
